Buffalo Bills: 5 players with the most to prove entering training camp
By Aaron Tully
Buffalo Bills cornerback Levi Wallace
Levi Wallace has been the second-string cornerback for the Buffalo Bills every year of his three-year career thus far.
Wallace has been solid during his time across the field from Tre’Davious White ever since signing with the Bills as an undrafted free agent (UDFA) in 2018. Opposing quarterbacks complete less than 60% of their passes on Wallace, and have an average passer rating of just 82.3. For reference, Cam Newton finished with an 82.9 passer rating in 2020, which was 28th in the league.
Despite his efforts, Bills fans always seem to be clamoring for an upgrade over Wallace. Many see second-year cornerback Dane Jackson as the one to take the second cornerback spot away from Wallace.
Jackson showed flashes of promise in the five games he played in 2020. It was a good enough effort for some Bills fans to believe he could start for the team.
Wallace has fought off challengers to his spot before, and it should surprise no one if he does it again. He has been a solid contributor to Buffalo’s secondary, which has been one of the best units in the entire league since his arrival.
Wallace has had a career that most UDFAs dream of having. Entering training camp, Wallace will start as the number two cornerback for the Bills, and he likely wants to end the calls for an upgrade at the position before the regular season even starts.
